It’s about two years until the scheduled release of Ridley Scott‘s next, Alien-connected, film, but that’s not too early to try to get it on your radar.
Now officially titled Alien: Covenant, the follow-up to Prometheus has an official synopsis that (sort of) connects it directly to the original franchise. A colony ship finds a planet that it thinks is uninhabited, but it turns out that David (Michael Fassbender), from Prometheus, is still hanging around, and apprently hilarity will ensue. This will somehow connect to the other Alien plotline, which doesn’t leave a lot of possibilities for, at the very least, the film’s end, but things are rather open beyond that.
20th Century Fox also released the film’s title treatment (see above), which isn’t particularly surprising, except insofar as it clearly connects itself to Alien again.
Keep your eyes out for more on this one. The connection means that there is a lot of marketing potential, and it’s a safe bet that this is one that will try to capitalize on a lot of angles.
